    If you have noticed drop in pinterest traffic just checking your domains. In last few days pinterest has blocked a lot of domains including authority and big sites. Like

    Code:

    Maybe they need to be whitelisted. Pinterest allow rstyle.me links and those are aff links. Etsy links are also allowed.

    Yes, it's very likely that sooner or later they will ban you.

    The pinned image should always lead to the actual image on your site if you want to be safe.

    Oh, You mean that if I have 10 pinterest accounts and they pined lots of images every day, all images that i pined from all my 10 account must be upload to my site?
    That means I must upload many many images to my site constantly? :10:

    If the images you are uploading / repinning is leading to a page with the image there will be no problem with account bans or URL blocks. Don't try to trick the users, especially when the users are making you money.

    If I had a meaty site that got banned, I'd try editing my pins url with a cloaker or a new domain redirect that goes back to the same site or something maybe?

    Also, I think they are doing something with image recognition, I haven't mentioned it to anyone because I haven't figured out a lot about it yet, but I KNOW for sure they are doing SOMETHING. I know some shit about this from ewhoring. It's a PITA, but if you're gonna move all content to a new domain I'd consider changing each photo by a pixel and renaming, if possible.

    Try to edit link of pin with the domain you think is banned. If it is banned pinterest will give an error if it is not banned link will be edited successfully.:)

    Have the pin it button enabled on your browser bar. Pin different images from different URLs on your website. That is the best and only practice I have ever used. I receive good traffic from pinterest and have not had an account banned.

    Yes pinning with the official button, don't pull any trigger and it wont yell at you that you've already pinned this here and there.

    How about if i said in the description. "This product is effective. Try looking at this site to see more product" Well im not misleading them now am i? Coz i didnt said that they will see the image that pin in the site, i said there will be more product in that site. Will that work?

    is it safe to upload pins of others to your website and pin them to your Pinterest account?
    I can imagine it's not legal, but as long as I'm aware a lot of people are doing so.
    How much trouble can it cause?

    It still works, but Pinterest have been cracking down on them. Many big accounts and websites that were active a year+ ago in the recipe niche have been banned. But more keep coming up. So just have a churn-and-burn mindset when going this route. The best way to go is to come up with brand and make your own content.

    Can you give me an idea how to generate content for such social network like pinterest and instagram?

    One thing is to write/rewrite an article for a blog once per day/few days, but another thing is to generate pictures/infographics. It seems extremely time consuming/expensive.
